The room had a comfortable double bed, covered in a white quilt. I had a private bath that was decent-sized. The room was painted in a tasteful beige with white crown moldings. The television was old-fashioned, not even possessing a remote control. Sitting next to the television were coffee- and tea-making facilities.
The inn possessed a rather large selection for breakfast, ranging from cereals to a full Scottish breakfast, guaranteed to put flesh on your ribs. You could even try haggis if the fancy struck you. That fancy did NOT strike me, however, as I'm just not that adventurous ;). The food's taste varied from day to day. The first morning, my scrambled eggs were rather unappetizing, and I only managed to eat 1/3. The toast was also much too crispy for my liking. The owner must have noticed, because on the second morning, my eggs were perfectly cooked and the bread perfectly toasted.
The owner was also very helpful in making sure I saw as much of Scotland as I could in the short time I was there. She mentioned a tour I might enjoy, and when I agreed, she booked the tour for me while I was out touring Edinburgh.
The only part of the inn that I didn't enjoy was the two-story climb to my room. The first flight of stairs was fairly generic, but the second set was a circular staircase that made carrying a rather large suitcase quite difficult. If you decide to grace the Craigmoss, I suggest you request a room lower down.
